There for. Two hundred nine high school girls, which selected through cluster random sampling, responded to Rosenberg's self-esteem scale and BICI. The reliability coefficients of the BICI were calculated in spilt-half and internal consistency methods, which were 0.66 and 0.84 respectively. The validity of the inventory was investigated by construct validity (factor analysis and subscale-total correlations). Factor analysis of the inventory using oblique rotation based on scree test showed 2 factor labeled dissatisfaction of the body and interference with social function, which covered 39.88 percent of the total variance. In subscale-total correlations, correlation coefficients of two factors with total score were 0.87, 0.82 and with together was 0.45. In part, examination of model each of paths existing in model investigated by path analysis that only the path body image dissatisfaction to self esteem was significant and remained in model and rest of the paths removed. In general findings of the research confirm appropriate validity and reliability of the Persian form of Body Image Concern Inventory and showed that we can simply apply this instrument in clinical and research situation for evaluation one's attitude of personal appearance.
